Okay, I’ve finally cracked. In common with hoards of smokers, my new year’s resolution to stop blogging has now officially lapsed, and it’s not even the end of January. Now, I’m a great believer that nobody is incapable of reform, so I am going to follow my support group’s advice and try an experimental form of aversion therapy. This will involve drinking neat cod liver oil and publishing a blog entry at least once per day for the next four weeks. The resulting dip in blog post quality and the overdose of typing should act like blog-methadone and ensure the future discontinuation of both the blogging impulse and any intransigent readership that might still remain. Wish me luck.
